This is one of the quietest six-month seismic periods for quakes at this magnitude in several years. • The largest quake measured M 3.2 and occurred at 5:08 p.m. Wednesday, Septem- ber 10, four miles southeast of Tahoe City in Lake Tahoe. Mild ground shudders were widely felt around the lake and as far away as Reno, Grass Valley and Placerville.. Lake Tahoe is part of the Basin and Range geo- morphic province and large faults have created the down-dropped valley• Recent evidence shows that large MT* quakes have occurred in past and may have been responsible for tsunamis on the lake. • A quake registering M 2.9 occurred in a remote location of northern Lassen Coun- ty near Moon Lake. Not felt• onal in ils Lassen Volcanic National Park wants ideas on managing trails and improving access in the Bumpass Hell basin area. While the Bumpass Hell basin is a popular destination for many visitors to the park, including school groups, it is also a large hydrothermal area that exemplifies the dynamic, ever-changing geologic environment found at Lassen. Currently, visitors may travel by foot along the main trail from the Bumpass Hell parking area into the basin, where they walk along a boardwalk that traverses a portion of the hydrothermal area. Additional trails in the area also offer views of the features, including another access trail that allows for exploration of the southern portion of the basin. Maintenance of the existing boardwalk is difficult and costly. Boiling pools, mudpots and steam vents move over time and necessitate a constant relocation of the structure. The heavy annual snow load frequently causes large portions of the boardwalk to shift and collapse. Repairs are difficult to complete and the relocation of the boardwalk is not always possible due to the location of hydrothermal features and unstable soils. Currently, the eastern end of the boardwalk is being undermined by a large hydrothermal feature, the pyrite pool. Other existing hydrothermal features in this area prevent a relocation of this section of the boardwalk. This section will need to be removed within the next year to prevent loss of the structure into the pyrite pool. Because of the high visitation to Bumpass Hell basin and the desire to provide an up-close experience near the hydrothermal features and the danger associated with off-trail travel in this hydrothermal area, trails and some boardwalks are a necessity to provide safe visitor access while also protecting the hydrothermal features themselves. The park is in the initial planning stages to develop a new trail concept for the Bumpass Hell basin. Under consideration are several options to provide and improve the unique experience of visiting this area and the park would appreciate input from the public. For all options, a portion of the existing boardwalk must be removed for resource protection and unfeasibility of maintenance due to the encroaching hydrothermal features. Potential options to maintain• access and resource protection to the Bumpass Hell basin include the following. --To remediate anticipated future maintenance and safety concerns associated with the remaining boardwalk, the entire boardwalk would be removed and access to the basin would occur via a loop trail that would be constructed by creating a trail on the north slope of the basin that would tie into existing trails surrounding the basin. --The remaining boardwalk not currently undermined would stay in place and would be stabilized. --Existing overlooks and the terminuses of the remaining boardwalk sections would be enlarged to accommodate larger groups of people. --An additional loop trail would be constructed around the basin by building a new trail along the northern slope of the basin that would tie into existing trails surrounding the basin and allow a different view of the hydrothermal features. --The existing basin overlook on the main Bumpass Hell trail would be improved and interpretive panels would be added/updated. --Overlooks on other existing trails in the basin would be delineated so they are more clearly defined. --Interpretive panels along trails in the basin would be provided/updated: LVNP invites everyone to comment on these ideas and provide the park with any other ideas they may have to continue a safe, enjoyable experience while visiting the Bumpass Hell basin.
